Hollywood: Easing Lib 1.2
Fabio Falcucci has updated his Hollywood library "Easing Lib". There are no detailed information of changes in version 1.2. Easing Lib is distributed as shareware and allows you to "create smooth transitions between values so you can use it to animate anything you like: graphical objects, colors, values, and any value you need to be smoothly changed into another value."
